Going off to college can be intimidating and exciting!
As a Hartwick College student, you will grow and change in amazing ways between Opening Convocation and Commencement. We know that the culture at Hartwick College and the people you meet here will have a big impact on your learning. That’s why we’ve implemented a comprehensive educational program to help you make the safest, healthiest decisions possible.
Every new Hartwick student is required to take AlcoholEdu® for College & Haven, Understanding Sexual Assault, and to pass the three-part survey components with a score of 75% or higher. Instructions for completing these courses can be found below. All new students must complete Part 1 of both courses by August 19, 2017.

Information for parents
While we are committed to making a difference with our students, we also understand that parents are the primary educators when it comes to healthy relationships and the first line of defense against alcohol misuse and abuse. That’s why we’ve made AlcoholEdu® and Haven for Parents available to you.
The content includes:
- An overview of the AlcoholEdu for College and Haven course structure and key concepts.
- A demo video that provides you with an overview of the course experience your child will be completing.
- Helpful resources, such as tips on talking to your college student about alcohol, warning signs of an alcohol problem, and links to additional resources.
Please note: Parent participation is optional. However it is important to know that if your student has taken AlcoholEdu® for High School, participation in this program is still required, as it does address this new stage of your student’s life.
